Thankful just because

My friend shared this with me this week and I am compelled to share it with you. It is a prayer of thankfulness for nothing, for everything, for no reason at all and for every reason!

Dear Lord,

I want to thank you for what you have already done

I am not going to wait until I see results

I am going to thank you right now

I am not going to wait until I feel better or things get better

I am going to thank you right now

I am not going to wait until the people who hurt me say they’re sorry

I am going to thank you right now

I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears

I am going to thank you right now

I m not going to wait until mu financial situation improves

I am going to thank you right now

I am not going to wait until I get a job

I am going to thank you right now

I am not going to wait until I understand every situation in my life that caused me pain

I am going to thank you right now

I am not going to wait until the storm is over

I am going to thank you right now

I am thanking you because I am alive

I am thanking you because I am still standing

I am thanking you because you haven’t given up on me

And I am thanking you because I am blessed beyond measure!

Look around you. Do you have food to eat, a roof over your head, shoes on your feet? Then isn’t God good anyway and things could be a lot worse than they are? Let’s get to being grateful and thankful for the little blessings in our lives and see what the results of that is. And tell me how your week is going at [email protected]
